Precision Spine has launched worldwide the Reform Ti titanium pedicle screw system, designed to provide increased flexibility, versatility, and visibility to take on challenging degenerative and trauma spine procedures.
The Reform Ti system features a titanium tulip and a triple lead thread to deliver strength, stability, and efficiency to all thoracolumbar constructs. A modified proximal tapered thread design increases bone screw interface, which enhances pull-out strength while reducing insertion torque, Precision Spine said in a press release.
The system also includes an aggressive self-starting tip on the Reform Ti screw combined with the system’s T25 drive feature, which according to Precision Spine, enables surgeons to achieve more immediate bone engagement, reliable insertion and maximum control during insertion. Hexalobular drive fittings on the bone screw and locking cap help reduce the incidence of toggle and stripping, the company said and a square threaded locking cap geometry is designed to reduce the risk of cross-threading. A full complement of offset connectors, dominoes, hooks and cross connectors increases procedure flexibility.
“The system’s low-profile titanium tulip gives surgeons increased space for fusion,” said Vikram Udani (Senta Clinic, San Diego, USA), “while decreasing the potential risk of adjacent segment facet impingement. The screw’s triple lead thread is extremely efficient and reduces the overall surgeon fatigue especially in longer constructs.”
“The Reform Ti system joins the rest of the Reform family of devices that bring advanced versatility, efficiency and cost-effectiveness to the OR,” said Chris DeNicola, chief operating officer of Precision Spine.
